Umbrella body to work with LGA on community initiatives
Voluntary sector umbrella body the NCVO and the Local Government Association have signed a concordat that commits both organisations to working together to promote better local communities.
Paul Cohen, chief executive of the LGA said: “There is increasing consensus that further improvements to our public services are best driven through strong local partnerships across the public and voluntary sectors. This concordat draws on the best examples of where these partnerships have excelled, and I hope it will serve as a model for others to use.”
Stephen Bubb, chief executive of Acevo, the chief executives body, said the agreement was “another signal that achieving social change lies in the empowerment of the citizen voice”.
